“If [the remarks] were off the record in 2005, they should also be off the record in 2007, and if something is off the record it in effect doesn't exist and there's nothing wrong with denying something that didn't exist."

Tony Abbott, Federal Minister for Health

    What a heap of self-serving, fatuous nonsense.

    No wonder he's a failed priest. Not even God is that forgiving.

  2. It's glorious, isn't it?

    So much hoopla over the strip club, but Abbott's forked-tongue doesn't warrant any attention.

    It has its own logic I suppose.

    Bit like a non-core promise. It was never core so it wasn't really ever given. Therefore it hasn't really ever been renegged on.
